The Paul Vanderwood Prize

$500 is awarded annually for the best article on any significant aspect of Latin American history written in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish and published in a journal other than the Hispanic American Historical Review or The Americas. An English translation of articles published in in French, Portuguese or Spanish is required. To be eligible for the prize, authors must be members of the CLAH during the year the article is published and the year that it is considered for the award. The committee will consider nominated and self-nominated articles. The committee will review only those articles published in the year preceding the award. Thus articles published in 2023 will be considered for the 2024 award to be presented at the conference in January 2025. For an article to be considered, each of the three committee members must receive a copy by email by June 1, 2024. The Executive Director should be informed of the committee’s decision no later than October 15, 2024.

This prize was established in 1961 and renamed the Vanderwood Prize, in recognition of Paul Vanderwood, in 2012. It carries a stipend of $500.

Note: The CLAH now requires current membership for all of its prizes.
